Vehicles Affected: Approximately 27,933 model-year 2012-13 Ford Edge crossovers equipped with 2.0-liter engines; only vehicles manufactured between Sept. 2, 2010, through April 25, 2013.
The Problem: Due to faulty manufacturing, a part of the fuel line housing could crack, leading to a possible fuel leak; this poses a fire risk. Ford said that as of November 2013, it is aware of 24 warranty claims related to a fuel leak. There have been no reported accidents, injuries or fires related to the recall, Ford said in a statement.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel line for free.
What Owners Should Do: Ford will notify owners starting Feb. 28. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
